A Crash Course At The College of Hard Knocks.. Article originally published by Blackbelt Magazine USA.. Experimental karate campus grades by the lump system.. "When I first came here, I was fighting from a different stance, standing open and was kicked in the groin a few times.. And I went down, but I learned to be ready the hard way.. ".. "In the universities, they don't pull their punches.. You do a technique and they sort of run onto it and it escalates until it becomes ridiculous.. But here, they're very kind.. All you have to do is ask and someone will show you something.. "Coming here from another country, it's a wonderful thing because in Central America I had only one instructor, who, like any other sensei, has his defects.. But here, I have very good instructors not only one, but several.. ".. Goal Setting for Karate Students.. As the new year approaches, let s keep in mind that this is an excellent time to set our personal progress goals for 2006.. Setting goals in karate has some unique challenges in that the benefits of karate training come from gradual progress over many years and not from isolated accomplishments.. While it may be tempting to set goals such as grade advancement this can actually work against you.. Karate schools tend to experience tremendous drop-out rates after students achieve black belt, for example, because of the emphasis placed on achieving that rank..

In Vassie Sensei's case, that glass was first filled by a heroic karate instructor in his native South Africa.. In essence, Vassie Sensei is a hero to others because he had a hero.. Vassie Sensei is the chief instructor and chief executive officer of the nonprofit organization Karatedo for Inner-City Kids (or K.. ) in Santa Monica, California, which he started eight years ago to introduce at-risk children and young adults to the Gorju-ryu style of Karate.. Vassie Sensei's hero was Sensei Leo Lipinski, who defied the police and welcomed kids of all races into  ...   Kumite practitioners and teachers, was an opportunity not to be missed.. The seminar was to be in Triesen, in Liechtenstein of all places.. The seminar could have been in Timbuctoo, we would still have got there.. On Giri: Loyalty.. On-Giri: Loyalty.. In Japanese Martial arts, there is a concept known as giri, which implies "loyalty" or "obligation".. This idea is understood and practiced widely in Japan, but not so in the West.. for reasons which will become obvious later in this article.. In Okinawa, the birthplace of Karate-do, the dojo is usually at the sensei s home, as the island was not rich and training space was limited.. So most of the training was done either in the house, or in the yard.. Classes were small, and students were hand-picked by the instructor..

Originally Chojun Miyagi was born as Miyagi Matsu however his name was changed to Chojun at the age of 5 by his uncle whom adopted him after the death of his father in 1893.. His family owned two ships which made regular trips to mainland China, placing them among the wealthiest families in the area and enabled a young Chojun Miyagi Sensei to travel to China to study the style of his instructor and develop the style of Karatedo we call Gojuryu today..

Ivan s own words from things he has written or tapes I have made.. Robert Hunt As I walked through the neighborhood of fallen concrete buildings and remaining ashes of those that burned, the smell of hibachi cooking permeated the air..

Co-Founder of Goju Kai Karate Do USA.. 1940-1990.. Kishio Gosei Yamaguchi was undoubtedly one of the finest Masters of Karate-do that we have had the honour to train with , albeit briefly.. Gosen Shihan's death in 1990 approximately one year after his father Jitsumi Gogen Kaiso, was the greatest shock to all of us, and especially so to his mother Midori Yamaguchi, and his siblings, Hirofumi Goshi, Norimi Gosei, and Wakako.. The pain etched indellibly into the face of Goshi Shihan as he discussed the tragic loss of his dear brother is testament enough to the esteem to which he was held within his own family..

MASANOBU SHINJO, LEE GRAY AND THE SHOBUKAN - THE OTHER GOJU RYU.. MASANOBU SHINJO, LEE GRAY AND THE SHOBUKAN - THE OTHER GOJU RYU By Robert Hunt The afternoon sun still drifted through opaque windows at the end of the gymnasium and offered a smidgen of hazy twilight to my corner of the stands.. Contestants and judges buzzed about the floor in constant activity and watchers came and went through the double doors at the other end of the room.. It was 1974..
